NounEdit

strid (plural strids)

  1. (Britain, dialect, dated) A narrow passage between precipitous rocks or banks, which looks as if it might be crossed at a stride.
    • 1807, William Wordsworth, The Force of Prayer, 17-24:
      The pair have reached that fearful chasm,
      How tempting to bestride!
      For lordly Wharf is there pent in
      With rocks on either side.
      This striding-place is called THE STRID,
      A name which it took of yore:
      A thousand years hath it borne that name,
      And shall a thousand more.
    (Can we find and add a quotation of Howitt to this entry?)
